CZI Platinum members

CZI submitted the budget input to the Ministry of Finance recently. Five key areas that were submitted as having the highest impact on business are the inflexible labour markets & high cost of labour, high cost of finance & lack of long term funding, inefficiency at Beitbridge border post, poor rail links to Beira and Durban as well as multiplicity of licences. The tariff requests from members have been sent to Competition and Tariff Commission for investigation and recommendation.

CZI in association with the Lean Institute Africa will be presenting the Introduction to Lean Management workshop in Harare on 8 & 9 February 2016 and Bulawayo 11 & 12 February 2016.
During these 2-day seminars the participants will be introduced to the principles and practices of Lean Management by means of presentations, videos and other learning materials.


The content of the workshop will include:
• Key concepts of Lean Management
• Process mapping to understand process flow
• Work analysis to identify value-creating vs wasteful activities
• Measurement to visualise operational performance
• Problem-solving using the A3 method
• Understanding Lean Management as a System


Past participants have described their experience on the workshop as an “eye-opener” to see how much a work process can be improved by applying the principles and practices of lean management. The workshop facilitator, Dr Anton Grütter, has more than 20 years of experience helping organisations to implement lean management systems in industry, commerce, services, administration and the public sector.
